Causes Of Late Menstruation While Breastfeeding?
Good afternoon. This is how my child is only 19 months old, I am already late for 15 days and I have positive results even though I am still breastfeeding my child. What should I do?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
One cause of delayed menstruation is indeed pregnancy. This pregnancy can occur in all women of childbearing age (breastfeeding mothers are no exception), especially if they have had unprotected sex.
However, you also need to know, that a positive testpack result cannot ensure that you really are pregnant. In some conditions, testpack results can also be positive due to errors in testpack procedures, urine contaminated by bacteria, side effects of drugs, or other pregnancy disorders, such as ectopic pregnancy, wine pregnancy, empty pregnancy, or miscarriage.
Therefore, you should not panic first. Confirm your testpack results by checking yourself directly to the doctor or obstetrician. With an ultrasound examination, pregnancy can be ascertained.
If it is also true that you are pregnant, you should be grateful for the gift of God. Know that there are many couples out there who want a baby but that desire is not being fulfilled because of various obstacles. Relate to the age of your new baby 19 months, indeed your pregnancy can later make your milk production decreases. However, if your baby has no problems in eating and drinking, often this condition can be handled well. In addition, later you might experience being overwhelmed in caring for your two children. But believe me, God will determine a person's destiny after weighing his abilities. Therefore, if you are believed to be pregnant with a second child, it means that God considers you able to take care of your two children later. Therefore, during this period of pregnancy, learn to always improve yourself to be a good mother, and to coordinate with your husband a lot on child management issues. Do not forget, always live a healthy lifestyle and also check your uterus regularly to the obstetrician. Thus, it is hoped that both of you will be better equipped to face the birth of your second baby with sincerity and responsibility.
Hope this helps ...
